sticking an R6 arse end on a thundercat really brings it up to date [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] what do you think

rather just get a R6 I'd think.

The 'Cat is a Sports Tourer, my attraction was more the mid range Tourer part which the manufacturers thought best to ditch.
However each to their own, I stuck a top box on mine and via some electronics have mine 'to my sense' of up to date, as I'd prefer not to go bigger bore for similar from Honda or larger still with a Bavarian company.

Thought about doing something like this, looked at the CBR back end as well, LED lights etc but I think I prefer the standard bike, unmolested, even toying with the idea of putting the original indicators back on.

(but I'm keeping the MTC end can, it sounds too hot) Wink

I've ridden both R6 and the TCat and the TCat is far better with mid range power delivery and more comfortable bars and pegs and is a good all rounder but now looks old..the pic with the "new" green Kawasaki and amazingly the 15 year old TCat looks a newer bike

Looks very nice to me, like what you have done with the clocks and agree about the R6 & Tcat.

My mate has R6 and I do think mine Tcat is better overall
